Wagyu is the superior Japanese breed of cattle. The name comes from the 2 compounds "Wa" & "Gyu" which mean Japanese and cow respectively. Their characteristic is the intramuscular fat which comes from the original use of these cattle for agriculture and looks like marble.
Over the years, the Wagyu breed began to be bred outside of Japan, mainly in the USA and Australia, with the latter now being the largest Wagyu breeder after Japan.
Its meat is extremely tender and its taste is unique. But in addition to the culinary delight, it is also extremely healthy as the ratio of monounsaturated and saturated fats is higher in Wagyu than in other breeds. Moreover, the saturated fat contained in Wagyu is also different from other breeds, it is called stearic acid and is considered to have a minimal impact in raising cholesterol levels.
